    One dish worth getting here, the unfortunately named “Fly Heads” is really a delicious heap of Chinese watercress and ground pork…our guess is the dish’s crunch inspired the name…enjoy!

    Order the stinky tofu! And always bring cash! I love this as the best chinese food in Elmhurst area. Given its taiwanese style, all foods are tastier than other chinese resto. The others are plain

    Beef & tomato over rice is alright...it does taste homemade tho. Pork chop over rice is great, so is preserved veg. & shredded pork noodle soup. My friend liked her beef w/chili pepper noodle soup.

    Reasonably priced, open 'til 2:00 AM, and sporting a voluminous menu that rewards the adventurous, I beseech you to find a more magical place in Elmhurst.

    Tried the niu rou mian -- a Taiwanese staple. However, no chiles in broth, pickled veg was swt not sour -- threw off the flavor. Ah well, will come back to try other dishes i hear they are good.

    Get the oyster pancake, 3 cup chicken and watercress with beef. Sweet and sour pork isn't that good so skip that!

    Get the crispy skin tofu! We always go for the beef w/ basil. Sweet n sour pork is different from the Cantonese style. Yum!

    The food is really good. the only thing that i hate about this place are the cranky waitresses. If they're in a bad mood, u'd surely get a rude customer service. 1 reason why id rather not eat here.😕

    Never order take-out here; rice doesn't come with an entrée and the containers are so small that the portions do not compare to dining in.

    Terrible, horrible food. Not one good dish. Such a waste of time and money. The best was the free cabbage salad they gave out before our dishes came out. Next came the horror.
